Preparing for your upcoming visit
We would like to be able to provide you with the best care that we can given the nature of your upcoming visit. It's important to note that we won't be able to weigh in on every aspect of a standard dental exam the same as when you would visit a dentist "in office". We are limited to certain sensory information, and will be mainly relying on what you can report to us. As such, it's important for us to receive as much information from you as possible to make a correct diagnosis and ensure success.
Please make sure you have all the information that you'd like to share with us regarding your concern ready at hand and organized. Some questions to answer are:
What is your chief concern?
When did you notice this concern? Has this happened before?
How did this happen?
Are you experiencing dental pain? On a scale of 1(mild annoyance) -10 (worst pain you've ever experienced) where does this fit?
Can you characterize the quality and location of your discomfort?
Does anything trigger your concern?
Does anything relieve your concern?
Do you see any visible or tangible changes such as size, color, taste, swelling ?
The better prepared we are, the better outcome we can achieve. Hang in there and see you soon!
